The read speed of your new memory is not compatible with your motherboard. It is a higher rate than allowed. The reason why it works when you have one of your old chips installed is because your PC will automatically drop the higher rate chip down to the one that is working. The reason it does not drop both new chips down to a suitable rate is because it has nothing to guide it like your compatible chip does. Always check the MHz on RAM chips and compare that with the acceptable rates listed on your motherboard specs. The good news is you can probably sell those chips and have money left over when you find upgraded compatible memory that is sure to be cheaper since it is slower.

SOURCE: memory installation

Most likely it has to do with your chipset. You might also be trying to run the RAM in dual-channel mode. Some systems are extremely finicky in dual-channel. Next time you boot, try looking in the BIOS to check if dual-channel is enabled or not. If it is, try disabling it and putting the chips back in. You can also go to your motherboard manufacturer's website and check for BIOS updates, as they tend to help with things like this.

SOURCE: Ram upgrade capability

Simply, yes you can. just open the case and put in the new boards. you can buy higher spec. memory(as long as the pins are the same number)
I.E. ddr-sdram boards will fit and as long as the speed is the same (132.8 Mhz) or higher.
I changed from 133Mhz to 333Mhz and the performance was much improved.
The PC3200 is the important bit, should be the same.
after you change the memory ,try running disc clean up in "start, all programs, accessories, disc clean up" this will also speed things up as well as de-fragmennting your drive(s)

Most likely the motherboard does not take more than 1 Gb of RAM. If so then you will have to do with 1 GB only. The new RAM is fine as it works alone.

It is DDR2 Sdram that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed') of 400MegaHertz.

Also known as PC2-3200

It is Non-ECC. Your computer USES Non-Error Correcting Control

NO MATTER WHAT, make sure there is a ram memory module ('Stick') in Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1.
This is the ram memory slot closest to the Processor. (CPU)

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John
